    • Salas has allowed four runs over 7.1 innings pitched during July. The 31-year-old right-hander had a 2.45 ERA on June 1, but it has now climbed to 4.87. Additionally, he has 10 strikeouts in that span, after posting 22 over April and May. Earlier in the year, he was the closer when Huston Street needed a rest day, but he hasn't been afforded those same opportunities recently.

    • Angels' Fernando Salas: Hits rough patch in June
      By RotoWire Staff

      Salas has thrown 5.2 innings in the month of June, allowing seven earned runs in that time. After posting a 2.45 ERA across his first 24 games (25.2 innings) of the season, Salas hit a rough patch in June. His ERA has shot up to 4.02 for the season, but he still has a respectable 1.09 WHIP. Left-handed batters seem to be the main problem for Salas, as they're hitting .278 with a .537 slugging percentage when he's on the mound. Although he's been struggling recently, Salas will likely continue to see regular innings, for just two pitchers in the Angels' bullpen have an ERA below 3.00.

    • Angels' Fernando Salas: Picks up second save.
      By RotoWire Staff

      Salas picked up his second save behind a clean inning with a strikeout in Monday's win over the Dodgers. Salas and Joe Smith continue to alternate save opportunities. This was a bounceback for Salas, who blew the save Saturday against Seattle as he allowed a run on two hits and only got one out. Even with that rough outing, Salas has solid numbers on the season, as Monday's clean inning lowered his ERA to 2.29 to go with 18 strikeouts in 19.2 innings. Neither Salas nor Smith is likely to keep the closer's role once Huston Street returns from an oblique injury.

    • Angels' Fernando Salas: Earns first save of season
      By RotoWire Staff

      Salas struck out a pair of batters in a perfect ninth inning to record his first save of the season Friday versus the Mariners. Joe Smith put three men on base while throwing 26 pitches during the eighth inning, opening the door for Salas to come on and close the game out. Smith is 2-for-2 in save opportunities since Huston Street (oblique) went on the DL, but Salas' impressive 1.96 ERA and 0.76 WHIP are far more impressive and could earn him a share of the ninth-inning duties until Street returns.

    • Salas struck out two and allowed one hit in 1.2 innings against the Mariners on Friday. Salas has pitched 10.1 innings this year, posting a 3.48 ERA and a 0.87 WHIP with a total of nine strikeouts. Besides a rough debut to the season, he has only allowed two runs in the previous 9.1 innings, partially due to an extremely low .167 BABIP. Salas earned career-bests in strikeout and walk rates in 2015, but has regressed throughout the early portion of this season. He will especially need to improve upon his 15.4 percent HR/FB rate, which he saw jump to a career-worst 10.8 percent last season.
